Metrics

The metrics available from metrics can be found on the source of the plugin. You can enable/disable metrics by commenting them (prepend with #) out of the file.

Dependencies
redis pypi

If you're running python3 you can run pip3 install redis, if you're running the older python2 nixstatsagent you can run pip install redis.

You can find out the version by running nixstatsagent info -- the plugin dir will have the python version for example: /usr/local/lib/ python3.6 /

Configure the plugin
To enable the plugin edit the nixstats configuration file. This file is usually located at /etc/nixstats.ini.

Add the following settings to the end of the file.

[redis_stat]
enabled=yes
host=nixstats
port=123
db=dbname
password=safeandsecurepassword


Test to see if the plugin is working by running nixstatsagent test redis_stat. It should return json data for the plugin.

redis_stat:
{
"uptime_in_seconds": 59949.0,
...
}


Now you can restart the agent service nixstatsagent restart to start monitoring Redis.
